I am just writing to thank the choir for an excellent concert last Saturday evening. All who attended thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The choir sang brilliantly and I hope the remainder of your season is as successful as our concert.
The proceeds of the concert amounted to £1,062 which is to help fund our replacement boiler, hopefully to be installed this week! We are delighted with the result.
Gillian - All Saints Church, Publow
The choir have supported CHSW for some time and took part in a Somerset Male Voice Choir extravaganza in Wells in 2017. We even produced the "Shining" CD in 2014; The title track from the CD was specially composed by Mendip Male Voice Choir's previous Musical Director, Kate Courage.
The sheet music for this lovely piece is available from BaBa Productions. There are versions available for TTBB, SATB and SSA. As with the CD, all profits from the sale of the sheet music are donated to the Children's Hospice South West.
Our concert at Clifton Cathedral in 2011 raised £1,078
The Mendip Male Voice Choir sang with The Minuendos at All Saints Church, Weston, Bath for the first concert of their Summer Season of 2014. The concert raised over £850 during the evening, of which over £400 will be given to The Margaret Coates Centre - a primary school in Bath for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and other associated disorders.
